Former Wis. DA made suggestive comments to women


MADISON (AP) -- A new batch of documents released by the Wisconsin Department of Justice show a former Calumet County district attorney frequently engaged in sexually charged behavior while in office.

The Appleton Post-Crescent reports Friday that while state prosecutors said Monday the behavior did not violate the law, it apparently did make some women who worked with Ken Kratz uncomfortable.

Among the 150 pages of documents released Friday, some show Melissa Ruskiewicz approached Kratz for help in receiving a pardon for a drug conviction.

She was reportedly "freaked out" by a text message from him asking how she would "please him between the sheets."

Kratz faces a civil lawsuit by Stephanie Van Groll, a domestic abuse victim who alleges Kratz sexually harassed her via text messages.
